  • Bears in action Sunday at...

    Spencer County’s game against Bullitt East has been rescheduled for Sunday, Jan. 30 at 4 p.m. as part of a double-header that is expected to attract several Division I coaches, scouts and plenty of media.

  • Randall Cobb and Charlie Strong...

    “One thing Coach (Randy) Sanders always talks about is making memories,” Randall Cobb said last week. “I have made many with my teammates, coaches, administration, and fans that I will never forget.”

    Ah, the college experience.

    Probably Cobb made a diary notation also for Saturday January 15, 2011.

  • COLUMN: Bears will learn a lot...

    With only about four weeks left in the regular season, the Spencer County Bears are about to embark on the stretch of their season that may signal whether they are really contenders, or just pretenders.

    As of Monday, they shared the top spot in the 8th region with Collins, with both the Bears and Titans sporting 13-4 records. Those two teams were to play Tuesday night in Shelbyville with the winner likely to get the top seed in the 30th district tournament next month.

  • Bears have no problem with St....

    If the Spencer County Bears were looking for a good tune-up on Saturday before heading into a tough stretch in their schedule, they may have been disappointed when they squared off against a very over-matched St. Francis team.

    However, that’s about the only disappointment in a game that saw the Bears roll to an embarrassingly easy 98-18 victory.
    St. Francis actually won the opening tip and appeared to have scored the game’s first basket, but those points were waved off because the St. Francis bench had called a timeout right before the shot.

  • Lady Bears fall flat against...

    The Spencer County Lady Bears saw their modest two-game winning streak come to a crashing halt Monday night when they fell to a talented John Hardin squad, 62-23.

    The Lady Bears got off to a slow start and never were able to recover. They fell behind 6-0 and were able only to get one bucket in the first quarter as they trailed 18-2 after the first break.

  • SCHS wins a pair in busy week

    It was a busy week for the Spencer County Bears who played three games in four days, winning the first two but dropping a tough loss to visiting Campbell County Friday night.

    The Bears began the week by hosting district foe Eminence on Tuesday.
    The visiting Warriors hung tough through most of the first half after the Bears took an early lead and had a 12-6 lead after one quarter with sophomore Chris Dunbar scoring eight points in the opening frame as he dominated inside.

    Josh Harrellson’s face is a Kentucky map this week.

    Kentucky’s win at Yum Center is different things to different people.

    For John Calipari an approval ratings bounce likes of which the most ardent Tea Party pol would sell his soul. From say, 95 to 99 percent.

  • OK to dream of Rupp Arena?

    What’s worse: setting goals too high and risking disappointment, or setting goals too low and guaranteeing mediocrity?

    It’s a question that the Spencer County Bears’ basketball team should be asking itself as both the calendar and season turns to 2011.

    Come March, 16 teams from across Kentucky will play their way to Rupp Arena to participate in the State Tournament. No team from Spencer County has ever made it to the Sweet 16, but each year there seems to be some school celebrating their debut appearance.

  • Lady Bears kick off New Year in...

    The Spencer County Lady Bears got 2011 off to a great start with a 44-27 victory over district foe Shelby County at home Monday night.

    The Lady Bears jumped out early by scoring the game’s first nine points and led 17-5 after one quarter.

    Shelby County closed the gap by scoring the first five points of the second quarter before MacKenzie Myers hit one of two free throws to push it back to 18-10. The Bears went into the halftime break with a 20-10 advantage.
